Posted letter to George Cocáli. ― I wish I knew how they were all going on. ――

The coopers’ littls girl seems, wonderful to say, better; but one can hardly tell yet. ― I worked all day ― (& nobody came!) at the 10 Campagna Water colored drawings I began yesterday ――― mainly on one, ― the copy of Mrs. Coleridge’s picture. This day was not passed unhappily ――― so much from the past comes back in doing these drawings ― & of course one don’t select those which would bring back pain=memories ― of which there are, God knows ― enough. ― Letters today, were from Annie Salter, & Mr. Tipping. Sir H.J. Storks, & Lady Simeon: & from Drummonds. ―

After 7, I left off work ― & at 8.30 dined μοναχῶς. The Coopers always give me a nice plain dinner ― cutlets & mashed potatoes ― & cherries.

Mr. Edwards has paid 105£ for the Turin to Drummonds.
